Q: What is it like working as an Automotive Service Technician / Mechanic at The Pep Boys?

Automotive Service Technician / Mechanic in Newark:
"Perks."
Pros: My job allows me to use my head and think/problem solve. So your constantly learning.
Cons: Sometimes communication is not there between us (the tech) and the service writer, so work orders and are delayed, misunderstood, ect. Slowing down productivity and pay.

Automotive Service Technician / Mechanic in Howell:
"At least I have a job, but I need to make more money."
Pros: They accept me for how slow I am to make sure the job is done right the first time, but I have been getting much faster. They accept me for the mental disorders I have which are Depression, ADD, and Anxiety. They pay for the registration fees for taking my ASE tests.
Cons: I don't make enough money because of my low productivity and I don't always get paid properly for the work I do. They very often need me to do the lowest level jobs which pays less because they don't have that many low level techs. The management is very poor. The boss is too pushy and puts me down a lot.
